How do I know if I am investing in Direct Plans? How do I know if the Scheme / Plan I have invested in is Direct Plan or Regular Plan?
The word “DIRECT” is clearly mentioned in the name of the scheme. Always ensure that you are investing or switching into “DIRECT PLANS” only. Just investing online does not ensure it is Direct Plan investing. In fact, many online brokers charge you upfront “Brokerage” in addition to earning commissions from your investments. So always check: The name itself will have the word ‘Direct’ in it. If it does not have; then it is not a Direct Plan.
